ClearCore - I/O and Motion Controller

CLCR-4-13

Each ClearCore Industrial I/O and Motion Controller handles up to 4 axes of high-speed step & direction motion, and provides 13 software-configurable I/O points (fully protected and 24 VDC compatible).

An extensive C++ library makes coding easier and more productive. The library includes many example projects compatible with the Atmel Studio 7 development environment. With the optional Atmel-ICE debug tool, you can take advantage of sophisticated debug techniques like single-stepping through code and setting complex breakpoints.

If you prefer a more lightweight development environment, you can download the optional ClearCore Arduino Wrapper Library. This allows you to write code within the easy to use Arduino IDE and using Arduino command syntax. This library includes dozens of Arduino "sketch" examples.

You can use ClearCore standalone to control smaller systems, or distributed by networking multiple units to a master CPU (e.g., Raspberry Pi). Communicate with ClearCore using its Ethernet port, one of its two serial ports or via USB; or communicate wirelessly by connecting a compatible XBee module.

You can expand each ClearCore’s digital I/O by adding up to eight CCIO-8 expansion modules. This provides up to an additional 64 points of configurable digital I/O.

See the ClearCore main product page for more information.

International Orders

International Shipping Policies

All of the items from our eCommerce store (ClearPath, ClearPath accessories, and power supplies) can be shipped to a number of selected countries outside of the United States. To see if we currently ship to your country, check the drop-down menu in the "Calculate Shipping Cost" box in the shopping cart or the Country drop-down menus on the Checkout page. Products shipped internationally may take up to two more days to ship due to extra processing time, but we will do our best to ship small quantities within three days.

For more information about Teknic’s international shipping policies and capabilities, please see the International Shipping FAQs page. Additionally, you can fill out our contact form or call us at +1 585 784 7454 for information about our OEM-direct sales channel and other options that may be available to you.

IMPORTANT: Additional charges not included in Teknic's shipping charges
Teknic's international shipping charges include express air transportation, brokerage fees, and clearance entry fees, but your destination country may charge you import duties (tariffs) and/or taxes and other fees for the products you import from Teknic. These charges are not included and must be paid by you upon receipt of your shipment. Unfortunately, we cannot calculate what your additional charges may be because customs and taxation policies vary widely from country to country. As a general guideline, the European Union duty rate for ClearPath motors is 2.7%; the global average import duty rate is about 4%; rates of 8-12% are not uncommon; and a few countries are higher. For exact details, please contact your destination’s customs office or visit their official website.

Lead Time/Shipping Info


Can Teknic ship my order in less than 3 days?

Possibly.

Teknic is able to promise that any part number ordered from the web will ship within three business days. We are able to promise this because we keep a stock of semi-finished assemblies. Your order is what triggers the final assembly, full test, and shipment of that specific product. This production method allows Teknic to promise a consistent, short lead time for any one of almost a thousand unique part numbers.

Depending on the exact manufacturing and order details, we may be able to build the order in less than three days. If that's the case, we won't hold off from shipping earlier. We just can't promise to ship anything in less than three business days. (And remember to add the shipping transit time to estimate the actual arrival date of your order.)
